Corporations, small to medium sized businesses, dignitaries and executives all face increasing threats from criminals, terrorists, racists, activists and the mentally ill. When there is a possibility of attack, kidnapping, assassination, blackmail, extortion or even negative PR, protection is vital. Legislation in the UK, which is governed by the Security Industry Authority (SIA), has made it illegal to use unqualified ‘minders’. It is a legal requirement for Close Protection Operatives to hold an SIA Close Protection qualification and a valid SIA Close Protection License. Failure to do so will result in prosecution and non the indemnification of insurance claims.
Cobra Security Scotland Ltd deploys highly trained SIA licensed Close Protection Operatives who have the ability to operate discreetly and professionally in high profile or low profile environments, whilst maintaining the capability to minimise threat and protect the principal in all situations. CP Team leaders (Tls) are capable of all duties including Surveillance and Intelligence Gathering, Route
Selection, Transportation and Operational Planning. This allows the principal and their sta to focus on their schedule without the worry of organising their own personal safety.
